A Columbia man driving a motorcycle was seriously injured Monday night in an accident on Clark Lane.

Christian Bullard, 30, was headed northbound when he braked to avoid a deer in the road. This caused the motorcycle to overturn and he was thrown from the vehicle, according to a report from the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

He was then taken to University Hospital by Boone County EMS. The report said he was not wearing a helmet. 

The crash was reported at 7:24 p.m., with extensive damage to the vehicle.

Bullard was treated and released by early Tuesday afternoon, according to MU Health Care spokesperson Eric Maze.
